WOODEN GATES

We manufacture ALL of our Wooden Gates here in the UK using traditional, time served construction techniques. Unlike others who offer pine gates, our pine is not only sourced from managed forests it is also slow grown (others use what is known as white wood pine for wooden gates). The importance of using slow grown is down to creating a more durable wooden gate. The density level in the wood is increased due to the growth rings in slow grown timber is tighter thus producing a better quality wooden gate.
We offer a range of wooden gate types with a number of designs available within each group. These include Driveway GatesSliding Gates3/4 Split GatesBi-fold GatesGarden GatesSide Gates and Field Gates. All of our wooden gates can be made to any width or height. Installation and automation is offered on our larger driveway gate range (inc sliding, 3/4 split, bi-fold and field gates).

PROS & CONS OF WOODEN GATES

Wooden gates are produced from a choice of timber. We offer this range, our Redwood Pine or Iroko Gates (hardwood). For cost, redwood pine wooden gates are the cheapest. Pine creates a strong and durable gate for any property – hence why this range is our most popular selling. Redwood pine timber does have knots in (although being slow grown this is a lot less than a white pine timber). Most people prefer the natural look of this as it makes a unique appearance to the gate and therefore will select a stain such as medium oak as the finish choice. For others, they prefer to have a gate with no knots and they will choose a wooden gate from iroko, or have a painted finish to cover the knots. For security and privacy a wooden gate is selected over wrought iron/ metal gates. The close boarded panels ensures minimal visibility. As for maintenance, to ensure a durable gate (that will easily last 10+ years), a wooden gate needs to be annually treated as a minimum. Ideally, when you receive the gate, it should be stained within 6 months then done annually this keeps the gate looking perfect and also reduces the risk of movement. However, wooden gates are a natural product and all are liable to move in the British climate. This is completely normal. The way our wooden gates are made allows for movement within the gate without being noticeable or effecting the opening/ closing of the gate. If we have a spell of wet weather (or hot, dry weather) the boards will “breathe”. This then opens up gaps within the gate. If this happens, there is nothing to worry about. The gate is designed and will return to normal once the weather settles. Our outer frame on wooden gates is mortise, tenon and dowel jointed to stop any movement from destroying the gate. Internal rebated frames are added to allow expansion along with millimeter gaps between cladding boards. Again, 99% of the time you wouldn’t see the movement as its hidden within the gate.
Overall, a wooden gate in redwood pine is a great choice for the majority of our customers. If maintained properly will last for years, always look good and provide additional security and privacy to your home.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Stunning service from start to finish with text and mail updates on build progress, Then when the gate arrived I was really pleased with the quality of the build. Would buy again.

This is the second gate we have bought from Gates and Fences. We were very happy with the first although the queue at that time was long, they kept in touch all the way until it was delivered as and when promised.

We like the quality and finish of the first so felt quite happy to wait for the second and we were delighted when it was promised and also delivered in a much shorter timespan.

Communication throughout the process was excellent and the care taken to ensure that our order was accurate and contained everything we needed. Well Done!

Easy to use website, well followed up with email progress reports as build progressed. Arrived on promised date, friendly crew unloaded gates.
Builder confirmed good quality gates and hinges/fittings also look good. Gates have now been installed and we are very pleased with the way they enhance the kerb appeal of our house.

I received regular updates on progress hence able to plan fitting easily (gate is for busy hotel) The gate was well packaged, everything was present and correct. Build was very good, it’s a decent weight and I think it’ll prove solid enough to cope with the use it’ll get for many years.
Visually it’s excellent and has already drawn several admiring comments.
Overall a super service and quality product.

A properly made gate built to last.
The whole experience was excellent, I was helped measuring the opening, discussing the options and finally choosing the right gate. I was kept informed during the UK manufacturing process, order was shipped as arranged, all well packaged. Hanging the gate (on my own) was possible, the instructions could be a little clearer but help is at hand via telephone. After sale service is also first rate. Overall – Very impressed 5 *****

From my first phone call to delivery, the information, advice and general communication was excellent. I was firstly advised that there might be a 4-6 week lead-in time but the gates were delivered in 4 weeks from ordering. That is 1st class service. E-mails kept me informed of the start of the manufacturing, to the end of the process of staining, oiling, quality control to delivery date. Well done.

They helped confirm my calculations for a bespoke size and kept me informed every step of the way. Quoted 5 weeks the our gate arrived in just 3. Product was of good quality and arrived well protected against damage. I found the website very good too. All in all very pleased with our purchase. Andy Boulter

I ordered a side gate from Gates and Fences as they were one of the few companies that could offer a bespoke gate at a reasonable price. I was very pleased with the quality of the end product, and it arrived well within the advertised turn-around time.

After completing the on-line order information, the company were very quick to respond and clarify my requirements.They did this by email and it a was a very efficient process. I was updated by email throughout the manufacturing process right up to when the side gate I ordered was delivered. Although I have not installed it yet, it looks magnificent ‘a beast of a gate’, but very good looking. I would highly recommend this company.
